[Numpy-discussion] Why this Difference in Importing NumPy 1.2 vs 1.4?

The current release of Scipy doesn't work perfectly well with Numpy 1.4.

On my systems (Mac OS 10.6, WinXP, and Ubuntu), I'm running Numpy 1.4 with the current Scipy on Python 2.6.4. I get the same error you describe below on the first attempt. For some reason unknown to me, it works on the second try.

Switching to Numpy 1.3 is the best solution to the error.

I wrote a program in Python 2.5 under Win7 and it runs fine using Numpy 1.2 , but not on a colleague's machine who has a slightly newer 2.5. We both use IDLE to execute the program. During import he gets this:
